Crossing the Bridge of Unknowing Retreat

A 16-day retreat with Tim Christopher at La Finca de Milagros, Benitachell, Spain.

“We are discovering the innate need of the spiritual adept as a student, or disciple of Jesus in A Course in Miracles, is to cross the bridge of unknowing that leads directly from the illusions of love to love’s reality, where all meaning lies. And this is no small step, for in it lies the complete escape from the strange attraction of the illusion of death. God awaits us on the other side, for the reality of love we share with Him, in Whom there is one life, without beginning and without end.”

“Waken from time, and answer fearlessly the Call of Him Who gave eternity to you in your creation. On this side of the bridge to timelessness you understand nothing. But as you step lightly across it, upheld by timelessness, you are directed straight to the Heart of God.”  T-16.IV.13

‘Having a teacher like Tim, the presence of Lambie and her beautiful messages through art presentations, being with 23 brothers all day is incredibly powerful. In the Course I’ve often read about God’s gifts, well the whole retreat is a gift. Seeing all the brothers transformed from darkness in light and feeling grateful for all the gifts. It was not only the beautiful and clear sessions of Tim, but also experiencing the first 50 lesson reviews each morning, the vespers in the evening, the blue sky meditations, the energetic meditation, the day of fasting-discovering how much you care about your body, the silent day hearing yourself talking and talking inside, the collaboration in managing the house, the day off going to the sea to swim, the prayer-tent, the lunch and dinner time eating and being together. Every moment is a complete experience of love’

“It has been an increasingly deep and firm experience”

 
‘It has been a sublime experience for me, from the words received by Lambie’s email, which were a challenge to decide whether or not to attend this retreat, to the demonstration of Christ through Tim.
I am grateful to Tim, for sharing his faithful message of the Truth and for taking me to an experience that is dethroning every personal idol. I am grateful too for his insistence, his clarity, and for his 70 times 7 ways to take us by the hand and lead us Home. I also had a personal experience of the light induced by Philly, which has instilled certainty in me. It has been an increasingly deep and firm experience. THANK YOU.’

“I have always experienced something new.”

‘Saying “yes” to be there at a retreat is a willingness to put aside all my negative thoughts and to remember that I have always experienced something new. Something that I could never have expected but something I truly want.’

           Steve

‘Imagine a space where you can really be yourself, where you can find a sanctuary where you can stay focused on the continued remembrance of Who you are, and the unraveling of the illusions of pain, through the teachings of Jesus transmitted in his purity by Tim C. Imagine a space where all your processes in that awakening will be received with total understanding and love, where love is reflected in each person who attends there, where each assistant – some with awakened minds share their experiences of light with you. That’s what the retreat experience is. And it’s an experience that is really hard to put into words. Its fruits are exponential and continue unfolding afterwards. Immense gratitude.’

“La Finca retreats with Tim Christopher are a celestial speed up extraordinaire ..”

‘For those of you who want to actually experience the amazing truth about Who you really are, and have direct communication with God Himself, as promised in our amazing ‘Course in Miracles’, La Finca retreats with Tim Christopher are a celestial speed up extraordinaire ..
Tim’s uncompromising teaching of the Course, coupled with the incredible power of other minds (some already advanced) joining in true purpose, produces an energy not of this world and you will feel it. Come to La Finca and you will have an experience I can guarantee you that . I most certainly did and continue to have. No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth. Love and Light’
 
 
 
‘This retreat offered a wonderful opportunity to join in true purpose with brothers in a singular and intensive experiential immersion in the teachings of a Course in Miracles in a beautiful and quiet sanctuary of sanity set apart from the world. The Holy Spirit simply pours through Tim who is a Course teacher of great vision, integrity, clarity and dedication.
There were many opportunities throughout the retreat experiences for service and for applying the Mind training in a supportive environment.
I can say without a doubt that the accumulative effect of these ongoing retreats and events has helped me to increasingly remain within the safe protection of the holy instant regardless of what seems to be happening in the dream, and brought about much deeper and more consistent experience.’

“It is a special place of transformation to look beyond the bonds of space-time.”

‘My experience of this retreat at la finca has been of a great transformation, wrapped in a love for all the brothers that supported me at all times. It is a special place of transformation to look beyond the bonds of space-time. Thank you very much to everyone who makes this possible. A hug.’

 
 
‘My experience of the retreats and events with Tim is that they are enormously helpful on many levels for the purification of my separate self-identity, whilst also giving me direct experiences of what I am in my real identity in the perfection of whole/Christ mind. 
On a personal level the events offer me clarity as to the ways in which I am blocking myself from receiving love. A level of honesty and awareness becomes available that I can’t access on my own. I then become acutely aware that I need healing, and become available to the teachings, to the miracle.
 

“My experience of the retreats and events with Tim is that they are enormously helpful on many levels, and completely mind-blowing on others!

‘I recently attended a 2 week retreat in Spain at La Finca where Tim Christopher was teaching the teachings of Jesus Christ as we know him from his Course in Miracles and my real experience was ….I felt I received an injection of Jesus Christ so I could really hear him clearly…what a treat!! Remember when Jesus told us 2000 years ago to love our neighbor as ourselves?..I struggled with that idea for a long time….and now I caught a glimpse ….a real glimpse ..into the possibility of truly being able to actually do that…this is the miracle!! and it’s just the beginning of really knowing Jesus …God….myself…my neighbor…and you!! Thank you Tim for an amazing retreat..and I know I will never be the same…which is both scary and exciting!!….Love from Philly..who continues to be grateful for all the gifts I have received through the grace of God!’

‘So if you are reading this then you must be thinking what it is like to be in in Tim’s Course of Miracles retreat. Lets just say you have to be in acceptance in order to get the most out of everything. The only prerequisite is to be of flexible mind and active with the course. Tim is an advanced teacher, not many teachers will get you out of a world of suffering into a world of a happy dream. The progress you make towards this happy dream and further is what ascension is. You realize that Truth is True and only Truth is True. Tim is a Course of Miracles teacher that will take you to the top of the ladder and fly. For that is the only experience that the Holy Instant brings. Experiences are of elation. This is why brothers all love being at One in Tim’s illuminated mind retreats. The only imperative is “come as you are”, and remember God is incomplete without you.’

“Experiences are of elation. This is why brothers all love being at One in Tim’s illuminated mind retreats.”

“When I join in mind with my brothers, powerful forces, unlike anything I could begin to explain are brought into being.”

‘I am aware that I am undergoing a process to heal the schism in my mind. As testament to the efficacy of my healing certain truths are being revealed to me as I learn to remove the blocks to loves presence. When I join in mind with my brothers (whom it transpires are not ‘the others’ I had previously perceived them as) powerful forces, unlike anything I could begin to explain are brought into being. And when I commune with those brothers, I perceive myself as whole and loved. That in itself fills me with gratitude and the joy it provides is palpable but there is so much more and it is at our retreats such as the recent La Finca in Spain, when our minds are joined in common purpose, where I undergo the most radical processes of healing.
I wish I could bottle this love medicine and give it to everyone, however it doesn’t work like that because ‘you’ have to want it, and then ‘you’ have to turn up and experience it. I could not recommend this action more highly, indeed it is my salvation.’
 
 
‘I always have great experiences when I go to the finca to a retreat with Tim and brothers. In fact, the best; is having an out of world experience which has nothing comparable with time and space . Every single time I go to la finca, I empty myself completely in order to receive eveything and remember my true identity. Nothing gives me a bigger buzz than a holy instant.
This last retreat I went down on my knees and I asked for help because I was sick of having the same issues with my daughters evey single day. The help was given inmediately; I had a revelation and I experienced that my daughters are memories of the past. They are not truly here. They are here for my salvation and for me to remember the truth about myself. So, that was a great experience that goes with me wherever I go. The tendency that I have to be in conflict as a human being is huge, but now there are not excuses; I know about the truth, therefore, I can inmediately step back if I wish to keep at peace. It´s about taking responsibility for my dream.’

“Tim creates a safe place where you always find true support in your process and where all kinds of miraculous experiences happen, before, during and after his retreats.”

‘My experience in a retreat with Tim Christopher always exceeds my expectations. I always heal what I have to heal in every moment. We heal with contrasts and there you experience so much light that it is almost impossible not to see the blocks that prevent us from experiencing the greatness of our Self. Tim creates a safe place where you always find true support in your process and where all kinds of miraculous experiences happen, before, during and after his retreats.’

“I am observing the fruits and I am immensely grateful for the gift you gave me.”

‘What I experienced with Tim and Lambie was very intense (and at the same time I was terrified and wanted to run away) where I stayed until the last day. Tim showed me from the first day. I’d met him at a different retreat and I’d had several experiences with him which in this retreat were intensified much more. I’m still settling into everything I’ve experienced in the retreat. I am observing the fruits and I am immensely grateful for the gift you gave me. Thank you for allowing it to be so. I love you.’

“It was a beautiful and life changing experience”

‘It’s indescribable really but if I had to write a sentence it would be that it was a beautiful and life changing experience that bought about a huge undoing from my fixed ideas about what I think love is.’

 
 
When I read the possibility of a retreat at la finca, I felt an impulse from within that told me ‘yes’- to go.
I started my stay at the beginning of 4 days, and on my second day, I was very clear that I wanted to be there for the whole retreat.
THANKS to Tim, Lambie and the whole team of the Illuminate Mind Foundation and the rest of the participants, I have been able to live the most wonderful experience of my life.
There were many moments of tears, but they were tears of happiness, well-being, inner peace, immense gratitude.
At La Finca I have “seen” better than ever, I have “felt” like never before and I have felt with a lot of Light and Love.
This Holy Place marks a before and an after, with a commitment to the Father, of “service and attention” to the other brothers.

“THANKS to Tim, Lambie and the whole team of the Illuminate Mind Foundation and the rest of the participants, I have been able to live the most wonderful experience of my life.”
